that. by your gifts online, paying tax, others don't, supreme court doesn't want to get in the middle of it. judge andrew napolitano has no problem getting in the middle of that. and then, consolidating your wallet into just one card. the high-tech idea could be the way we shop in the future. it is all coming up along with dagen mcdowell on "markets now." dagen: giddyup. changing out of the shirt you had done earlier and now you look more businesslike. connell: i will take that as a complement on both sides. i have no other choice but to check the market and talk to the judge. dagen: we have to hit your slender. we have gains on the market right now despite the better-than-expected numbers from adp, nicole petallides at the new york stock exchange. nicole: you mentioned adp, which was better. we also got new hom home sales numbers better than expected, we are seeing the market with three straight days of selling and they might have scooped up some opportunity. right now dow jones industrial of 41 points, a gain of one quarter of 1%. microsoft hitting new highs, goldman sachs and unite

that would dramatically lower taxes in detroit, bring the corporate income tax down to five percent, the personal income tax down to five percent, make the capital gains tax zero, take the payroll tax and bring it down for the employee and the employer. without bringing any new money to detroit, just leaving money in detroit is over a billion dollars that would stimulate detroit's economy. >> basically a flat tax but flat nonetheless. >> absolutely. flat and very low. we also look at regulations and try to get rid of the owner's regulations that's making it expensive for city government and for businesses to locate in detroit. we think if you combine all of this, that it would be the model for how you would rescue cities across the country but any impoverished area. we have impoverished areas in eastern kentucky. we think this same plan would rescue them and parts of louisville and other major cities. >> maybe the country while you're at it. we have had five years of spread the wealth. you didn't build that. share share economics. where has obama failed detroit? >> here's the proble

't the way to do it. the earned income tax cret does it. take this out of politics. take this out of unions. remember, 67% of people that make minimum wage work part time. $53,000 a year is what the average person who makes a minimum wage, that household, makes. this does not do a lot for poverty but it does hurt sma business. >> does it hurt the young people, the college students who are flipping burgers? they don't want to make a career of it but they're part time and raising the wage would probably get them out of a job. >> actually, i totally disagree with that. there's very little evidence to suggest that. a modest increase in the minimum wage, tying it to inflation, actually has a net job loss. >> they're asking for double. >> i don't think that's appropriate. i support the president's call to raise the minimum wage. as he said in february, tie that to inflation, tie that to cost of living. that makes nse. how can anybody earn a living on $15,000 a year? doesn't make sense. i don't support a whole sale increase of it to 15. i think that would be too much. tying the minimum wage to inf

[ male announcer ] dayquil cold and flu doesn't treat all that. it doesn't? [ male anner ] alka-seltzer plus fights your worst cold symptoms plus has a fast-acting antihistamine. oh, what a relief it is! >>> from the world headquarters of fox news, it's "the kelly file" with megyn kelly. >>> well, for several weeks now we have seen reports about unions complaining over a new obama care tax that is reportedly pricey. we are trying to learn if this administration has quietly passed a rule giving unions a very big break on that tax. trace gallagher has the story. >> reporter: the tax is called a reinsurance fee. it's on nearly every health plan fo
which is trying to make a big stink about this suggesting that they wouldn't, for example, allow tax cuts or other types of things for certain companies and not others, right? this is whether we should have tax cuts. >> this happens all the time. totally incestuous between public and private constantly. look at places like illinois now where any company that stays is getting some kind of a deal except probably the small ones. >> except the small ones. any company of any size is getting a deal. >> maybe the rolls should be across the board nothing? >> no. >> a friend of mine, joannea kagan. >> didn't bob kraft do it in foxborough? >> i don't know enough. >>> let's talk about the next story. if you work on wall street and are considering growing a beard, an article in "the new york times" says that while beards are in fashion right now, that is not the case in the finance industry. i guess it's okay in fashion, it's okay in design. a lot of different areas if you're a helpster but in the fashion world, gentleman, the argument goes it looks like you have something to hide. >> you could
in detroit simply by lowering the taxes in detroit. >> it's like kemp's enterprise zones on steroids. i looked over the plan. you're calling it the freedom plan. you will give eligible areas a reduction in individual and corporate tax rates. correct? yes. we'll take personal and corporate tax down to 5%. bring the payroll tax down for the worker and employer. and we'll reduce the red tape and let businesses thrive. we'll invite entrepreneurs from around the country and around the world who want to come to detroit and make it like a mini hong kong. there are great things you can do the. it's amazing how much money accumulates not from other parts of the country but just from detroit's tax base if you don't take it to washington. you leave it in detroit. >> you're saying you will reduce the personal tax liability to 5%. can you do that? you're senator rand paul, one senator. how do you accomplish -- i like the idea. i'm asking how you accomplish it. >> well, if i were president obama i would do it by edict. i'm just a senator so we have to pass it as legislation and get the president to s
. >> in the '80s and '0s we did not have just a tax increase of cuts but that have been dip this year that could have called is like having 400,000 jobs crted because we're not in stimulus motive to do more. it wasood news. >> so if we have a government is shut down assembly will have a quarter reported taken off for gdp what a powerful economic engine and then we have third quarter gdp growth of 3.6% iested a couple years it a good jobs ever. i thought the sequester were to be devastating? >>. >> the more it cuts spending the better for the private sector when dispense the dollar i don't understand the logic. >> we pay people borrow money not to work and people are working. that does not make sen. >> to give emergency benefits where does the money come from? >> if we give you a tax cut they will put it in their pocket. >> we have to make sure that people need the jobs and food get it. >> with 47 million people? people largely a pretty good job. >> of course, the we should not said that giving a lot more welfare benefits was better for the economy that it be better with 30 billion forth three or
, attacking labor. everybody makes way too much money in detroit and that's the problem. low taxes. of course, we've got to cut taxes. but here's the catch. wi withholding state money from the city has helped crush the city of detroit. now, i don't know what city you live in. but let's just think about this. all of a sudden, your city, and you pay state taxes, you're not going to get any state funds anymore. oh, no, no, no. you live in who struck john usa. no, you don't get taxes anymore. the state legislature is holding the money from you so you have to suck it up. the numbers are pretty staggering. you've got deregulation of wall street, which has also hurt the pensions and when it came back, how much money did that go to the pension fund to help out oh? detroit lost roughly 300,000 jobs over the past 30 years. there is no way a city survives when it loses 90% of its manufacturing base. the tax base has eroded, along with public services and public safety. what's the result? people are getting the hell out of town. severe outmigration. and those who are staying there are getting stuck with
all boats. we don't need redistribution tax hikes, we don't need state run health care, more spending, lower the incentive barriers and bring us growth. here's another big problem for president obama, the millennials are abandoning him and obama care in droves. a new poll shows plunging support from young people. because the obama care website is in such bad shape, the government now has offered to bail out insurance company profit and losses, and in a possible second bailout, provide the insurers with guest estimates of health care subsidies. this whole story has gone haywire. all right? all of this and more coming up on "the kudlow report" beginning right now. >>> good evening, everyone. i'm larry kudlow. this is "the kudlow report." we're live here at 7:00 p.m. eastern, 4:00 pacific. president obama tries everything we can to get the attention away from the obama care, anything. today he went back to his old stand by, the rich. for more on the president's remarks about, quote, income inequality, end quote, let's bring in nbc's own steve handelsman. steve. >> reporter: larry, thanks

you give a word of caution yes, sir of the year? do we wait until january? people have tax issues. do you think now is good time to address the market as we're sitting on highs for the day? >> sure. anytime we get to a new high you have to be cautious and why are we here? is it based on fundamentals or is it a little frothy? i think it is based on fundamentals. cheryl: you would wait? >> i would, wouldn't necessarily, well i would actually ease in. depends on areas. i look for opportunities when stocks come down when everything else is going up. comes up on my radar why did that stock go down? what is the specific issue. that is the way which i would property it. look for more of those divergences where there are stocks maybe at the market stays where it is, what is going down. why is it going down and look there if is there good fundamental reason to do it. we have a lot of political headlines in the election year. that could cause volatility in the markets. could be fun for people. cheryl: maybe now and january time to ease into the market? ease is the word of the day. >> like a hot
been the weakest recovery since the depression so what you see is tax collections coming back but only gradually and now with the softness of retail sales people forget that states rely on holiday retail sales for their own sales tax collections and that is not a good sign. connell: are not worried about another big city going the way of detroit. >> not over the long term but other big cities the problems with the pension systems and all these cities even chicago where some of the pension systems are 25% funded but they have a trust fund with money to pay people for now but going forward as investors look what it would take to repay the pension debt, more and more investors are saying i am not sure going forward i should do what detroit investors did a decade ago which is continue investing. dagen: bottom line for d 2 and other municipalities this could be this will bargaining chip to bargain with the unions in other cities. >> the judge has set a precedent. if he said the other precedent it would have removed that as a bargaining chip. connell: something that they had to have. thanks
tax dollars is not solving it. >>hank you. gerri: unbelieveable, right, own carry mess goes on. and now more disturbing news for your healthy, fda warning some defidefibrillators made by phils medamedical system may fail. i have to tell you, i think this story is appalling, so many machines and only now federal government waking up saying we need to fix it, get out tell people that machine macs may not work. they may be -- you may be having a heart attack, it supplies to you, you are not rsus started. where is the government been? what about something simple like this. >> you know, interestingly, fda just this year, finally passed new legislation that they will regulate deeibrillators like other medical devices, however all tse bits and pieces are just now coming together, over 400,000 americans die suddenly every year, that is more than all types of cancers combined, if you have a defibrillate or deployed, 70% survive without one, less than 5%. >> how big is this problem with these machines not working? why are they? how many are there? >> this particular did fibrillatdefibri
. a low rate flat tax, spending restraint. you know the drill. it's all there. and that, this is all a consequence of very bad economic policies by this administration and congress, especially the senate and they've put through a lot of tax increases this year and you're seeing the consequences of it. look at what obamacare has been doing, it's liighths catastrophe and why would you expect something really good to be coming out of this mess? i wouldn't. >> i think we've had this conversation before. >> yeah, we have. >> unfortunately. are we going to have it again in a couple of minutes? because i question whether you're going to get any change in economic policy in the next three years, i don't think you are, but i'll come back to you on that one in a second, okay? >> it's a deal. stuart: i want to move on to amazon's chief jeff bezos on 60 minutes. he showed off a flight of amazon experimental delivery drones. yes, drones to deliver packages. keith fitzgerald is with us, keith, he's looking like the new steve jobs and amazon is behaving like apple. >> he's defining innovation and
about it. >> check with your tax accountant, because some stocks cannot really go into i.r.a.s because of a business tax. you want to be sure. you've got to talk with your accountant about these. the stock had a not great quarter and it's been knocked down. and the master limited partnerships have all been coming down. but i believe in rich kinder. rich kinder is not dick heckman. dick heckmann had a terrific company around, this one's not it. rich kinder made a lot of people a lot of money. i'm not going to abandon that company. but i do honestly right now like linn energy more. higher rates don't have to be the end of the world, conn's might be a microcosm. wouldn't you like to have a stock that goes up gigantically? or would you say i don't want that gain because rates are going higher? stay with cramer. >>> coming up -- nice view? hilton's more than $2 billion ipo is about to hit the street. are there better accommodations for your cash, or should you try and book a room in this newly minted stock? >>> you know that this has been a downright incredible year for initial public offer
by online retailers to draw a new york state law that requires customers to pay a new york state sales tax, even if they are buying online. if you live in those states with sales taxes, you will have to pay the very same taxes as you would in one of those brick and mortar stores. much more is still ahead and we will take a look at the global hotspots ignored by the obama administration and the national media. revolution breaking out entirely. but what does the doctor and say? what does mr. obama say? and the president trying to keep congress from passing new sanctions against iran. we will be joined by ralph peters in k.t. mcfarland with the analysis. we will await results from cybermonday. jen rogers joins us to tell us what it means for the to be american economy and the global economy as well. we are coming right back. the obama administration touting dramatic improvements out of healthcare.gov, and that is not what we are finding. we will be talking with the former director, tom scully, on what is really going on with obamacare. as a business owner, i'm constaly putting out fires. so i
look at tax payers wallets. an open-ended obligation of my money going to insurers to fix the problem because the poor planning of this administration. again, why is that? >> i think it's not just this, it's the whole law, and i think you're actually onto something there. because people have talked about whether this will work and how many people would enroll, will there be a so-called deathspiral and etc. gerri: president is willing to open the process and the task of these insurers to give them whatever they want. let's talk about how many times the price tags for this website has gone up. that is now a billion dollars. it seems as though they are not willing to say that we are going to end this plan and what they are willing to say is that we will spend what we have to to make it work. and i could be disastrous. >> that is correct. but they probably will do exactly that despite what they have to. but even without him i don't think what they are going to get is much more than something that looks like a bit more medicaid for a few more people at a very high price tag. and it's not g
there what this administration is going to try to do on tax policy, people are puttg their money in gold overseas, and they don't trust this administration. so -- >> the world has the same view. they say through this "forbes" study businesses that world is their oyster, they can park their money or businesses or plans anywhere they do not see us fitting into that tragedy, ireland, yes, u.s., no. >> absolutely. and a flick of your on a keyboard, you can invest, put your money, run a business overseas from sitting at home, and if you don't know what your stability is and the economic consequences of political actions here, you put your money someplace else. we're stagnant. neil: amazing, thank you dennis hastert. uncle sam, have a pint and drown your sorrows, ireland and others are doing better. but we want to pursue why these countries are the draws and we are not, that is what is important, i want to focus on why that is the case. after this. as a business owner, i'm constantly putting out fires. so i deserve a small business credit card with amazing rewards. with the spark cascard from
the gasoline tax? >> you account for $42 billion, can you sell out for me where that has gone? >> it accounts for the hundreds of billions that were already forking over things like this. shouldn't we apply and it is a sign that funds are tight? also, where all the funds have been going thus far. apparently not into as a business owner, i'm constantly putting out fires. so i deserve a small business credit card with the spark cascard from capital one, i get 2% cash back on ery purase, every day. i break my back around here. finally soone's recognizing me with unlimited rewards! meetings start at 11, cindy.

gasoline tax? >> you account f can you sell out for me where that has gone? >> it accounts for the hundreds of billions that were already forking over things like this. shouldn't apply and it is a sign that funds are tight? also, where all the funds have been going thus far. i take prilosec otc each morning for my frequent heartburn. because you can't beat zero heartburn. woo hoo! [ male announcer ] prilosec otc is the number one doctor recommended frequent heartburn medicine for 8 straight yes. one pill each morning. 24 hours. zero heartburn. neil: this is one of my favorite conversations, if you can call it that. the awkward dynamics of president oba and president putin of russia. this is not going to go well. the u.s. government accusing russian diplomats as scamming americn dollars. they don't like putin-care, but they do like obamacare. at the it's the same program that many want to expand. but they don't look at where they have been throwing them. dam, it's good to see you. >> it's good to see you as well. >> would he make of this? >> i think that this is an example that many finally
that affect all online shoppers. sales taxes and why you should be paying it. states lose $2 billion a year from uncollected tax from web users. the supreme court decided yesterday not to get involved in appeals from amazon.com and overstock.com. the court let ruling from internet retailers to collect sales taxes even if they have no physical presence in the state. do you follow me? the issue effectively ends tax-free online shopping for lots of people. brick and mortar people say they are at a disadvantage when they have to collect taxes and online do not. it's different from state-to-state and it's just been a real mess there but supreme court is not going to weigh in on this. i want to give you a quick peek at the markets. dow and the major markets all fell after the black friday results showed that consumers spent less than last year. gold stock fell as well. concerns about the fed withdrawing -- using a big pull-back in gold this year. the ten-year treasury climbed again. it means higher mortgage rates likely and higher rates for car loans and the like. krispy kreme had a very bad day.
successful. there is corporate tax reform -- >> the problem is when you say tax reform you mean cutting taxes for the wealthy. >> no reforming the tax code to incentivize businesses to hire. >> but again, i would say you have a lot of blockaids in your own party. >> i want to get your take. on the former vice president dick cheney speaking out about the feud between his daughters. listen to this. >> we were surprised when there was an attack launched against liz on facebook. and we wished it had not happened. it was always dealt with in the family and we wish it was. >> it was launched against liz by her sister and her wife. >> this is a little godfatherish. we want to keep this in the family, but the irony here for dick cheney is that he is to the left of his own daughter who is running for the senate in the state of wyoming on the issue of gay marriage. he said that he believes in personal freedom and that he believes it's an issue that should be left up to the states and she has said i'm opposed to gay marriage. so he is more libertarian than he is. >> the family fuse within the family, an
new york times" editorialized, "the emphasis on cutting taxes and spending that began in the reagan years is a direct result of economic insecurity now. it has led, for spm, to education cuts that have harmed children in low-income school districts. reversing those decisions can still have an enormous impact." but under president obama, america's spending more money on education than any other nation in the world. also, taxes have been going up. and we have record debt. but the left wants more spending and even higher taxes. simply put, the big government spending machine has not helped the economy very much. but again, liberal theory trumps results. >> the idea that so many children are born into poverty in the wealthiest nation on earth is heartbreaking enough, but the idea that a child may never be able to escape that poverty because she lacks a decent education or health care or a community that views her future as their own? that should offend all of us. >> well, it certainly offends me. if children are not getting a good education or do not have proper health care, i'm offende
names. >> stocks up, too. you're not going to have that big tax loss fear. a lot of people saying i can find inexpensive tech, i don't need to go into the cloud. although apple is saying this is about ibm being wrong and apple being right. >> there has been an expectation of a china mobile deal. >> yes. >> unbeknownst to most people who hold the stock. that being said, 740 million china mobile subscribers, there is a fairly large audience they could conceivably be addressing to try to buy smartphones. >> do you remember the conference call that was the open rebellion against tim cook? it was withone of these things e i thought it was 1948 where stillwell had just lost china and now he's making a move. he did not lose china. >> we'll see. that fortune story has a lot of people talking about whether china mobile makes a big move in this direction, having not carried their phones till now. >> maybe samsung -- don't hear a lot about samsung having a revolutionary new phone. >> no, although they've got a lot of new patents, they're going to do the curve thing or fold thing. >> maybe they hav
